They hem and haw about how she needs a snack to go to her party, and Serena makes her meanest face yet.
Serena: "Once you get that old thing back on her pins, we can interrogate Ivy some more."
Do you hear them? The children of the night? I do. And they are howling for Ivy... Or else for us. Perhaps, that. Perhaps they howl for those who doubt her. Those doubters among us, of her. Perhaps they.
Whenever Nate walks into a room, all the sad young literary women and gender-neutral young literary men burst into applause. I believe it.
Intern from Before: "You're so great at being you!"
Nate: "I hope other people agree."
And it is! It's an editorial! Where he doesn't name names! He just says "somebody" tried to dick the media around -- Vanderbilts included -- and then says his paper will be better than that.

You know what? Totally redeemed. Nice job:
Chuck: "Blair, you aren't the darkness of me, you are the lightness or something."
Blair: "Tell me more of your thoughts on this matter."
Chuck, verbatim: "I only turned dark and desperate because I was afraid of losing you. Your love kept me alive."
Blair: "And yet you lived."
Chuck: "No, I survived the worst possible thing. Not the same. I want you to be happy, with me or otherwise."
Cake Boss: "I am probably famous among New Yorkers, and/or wizened gnome ladies that live under buckled sidewalks and sup on self-published folk rock albums and the occasional any-leafed clover. Are you the groom?"
Chuck: "I am not."
Let's discuss "Ivy Dickens" some more; the truth behind the lie that is the lie behind the... I don't care. I just love Max, and he is being done dirt.
Carol tells the same story for the fourth time, and somehow Ivy gets it to be about Max blackmailing her! And then oh my God, she starts into this insane story about how he (hypnotized) blackmailed her into performing unspeakable acts and videotaped them and now wants to hit the Rhodesses with that if she doesn't keep him happy.
Oh man, I love Ivy now. Girlfriend's a little Honey Badger!
